Need help asap please

Ok so im doing my HG, was working on the p/s. I got all my main studs 1-10 (arp) torqued down to 210. When i went to 11-15 to torque them down to 23ft lbs one of those bolts snapped. So i then tore everthing back apart and extracted the bolt. Wich leads to my first question. Does anyone have the bolts part number? Second question is, since the HG was already compressed, is it re-usable or do i have to buy another?

I would say that the gasket is still good but it would be cheap insurance just to buy another at this point. I'm pretty sure they don't just sell the studs individually

I have never done a 6.0 head gaskets, but I have done MANY other diesel HG. I never reuse a crushed HG even when they don't
have crush sleeves for the water jackets. That being said 23 lb-ft isn't much and if it was the first or second bolt I might try reusing it but only on my own truck, not on someone else's.
